Synopsis

This exciting sourcebook is bursting with ideas for the elegant bride-to-be, to help her find her perfect wedding dress. Whether it's ideas for an off-the-peg design or inspiration for a couture made-to-measure gown, this book will show at a glance the main styles from which to choose.



















Each chapter features a classic line (Empire Line, Princess Line, Ballgown, etc.) and explains what body shape it suits, which fabrics it works best with, the era it hails from and, of course, which famous brides wore the style. Every line is illustrated with a striking artwork and then follow hundreds of dresses to spark the imagination. Featuring famous faces, modern brides, vintage classics and a wide range of dress designers, the photographs show what can be done with the basic shape - from classic simplicity to daring flights of fancy. This is the ultimate source of dress and accessory ideas and will make a wonderful engagement gift.
